Silver is the new gold–and not as pricey. Join in on a new jewelry making craze–with metal clay. Nearly everyone can create beautiful silver wearable art in a couple of two-hour sessions. This remarkable clay can be formed much like ceramic clay; it can be stamped, carved or impressed with diverse objects to create unique patterns and designs. This is an entry-level class. Included in the class fee is sufficient silver clay to make one or more pendants, earrings or several bracelet charms. The class will meet two times the same day to allow for firing of pieces in between meetings. The morning session involves forming and embellishing simple, two-dimensional shapes. The instructor fires these pieces during break. Finish your pieces in the afternoon session, fashioning them into artful creations, ready to wear. – See more at: https://continue.utah.edu/lifelong/class/llcft_242_metal_clay___silver#sthash.JxIqE7qs.dpuf
